About Us

In 1990 J&J Rail Sales, Inc. started in a small office in Schaumburg, IL by John and Joanne Schafer. Since then business has grown, we now stock 15 varieties of Crane and Rail Road Rail. All our inventory including accessories is stocked in our indoor warehouse. We are able to punch and cut rails to customer specifications, and curved rails are also available.

We are a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) due to the fact that our President, John Schafer, is a U.S. Navy Veteran. We have worked with the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy on government jobs, and continue to be leaders and experts in Overhead Crane Rails, Specialty Rail Projects, and Industrial Material Handling. As a small business, we pride ourselves on having excellent customer service by paying attention to detail and being reliable to meet every customers’ need.
